    Reminder that political topics are not permitted on TWW, even if thinly disguised as wargames related subjects.
    Please respect the rules.

    Due to an update of the PM system it has unfortunately confused old messages with new ones.
    Sorry about that, once you read them it all should all be good.

    Next week, W/C 15th I am away on holiday.
    I am assured our accommodation has wi-fi so I will be able to work on TWW, but in a limited capacity.
    Please expect possible slight delays.

    I have been doing some book-keeping and it appears that quite a few sponsoring members’ payments have either been cancelled or suspended due to non-payment but they maintained their sponsoring privileges.
    I have corrected this today.
    If however you believe that your account has been downgraded incorrectly, and apologies if it has, please send me an e-mail with your PayPal subscription ID and I will correct any errors.

    The news hit counter now shows visits from logged in members and total visits.
    Previously it only showed logged in visits.

    TWW has always had an RSS feed, however I was unaware that not all browsers could find it, so there is now an RSS button so you can locate it yourself, for those that like that sort of thing.

    Please be aware I will have limited access to my e-mails on Sunday and Monday.
    There may be a slight delay in the posting of news.
    Apologies in advance.

    How busy is TWW?
    Here are some rough stats about it:

    TWW gets about 3300 unique visitors a month.

    TWW gets about 2200 visits per day, this is about 66,000 visits per month.

    Looking at the period specific forums (so not things like the terrain or general forum) we have about 3200 historical topics and about 1100 fantasy/sci-fi making the ratio of historical vs non historical roughly 3:1
    Plus about 700 general topics.

    Thank you very much to everyone that is part of this community, and I hope to see us grow bigger and better together.

    I am trialling a feature where you can upload images directly to the site without the need for third party hosting.
    It is a trial for now, I hope to keep it around forever but I will need to monitor stuff, and things.

    For now though it is live.

    To do it, click the image icon:

    Then when that opens a pop up click the little folder to search your device for an image:

    Upload and go!

    PS: Try to keep the images small in file size or the server will reject them, less than 1mb please, around 300kb should be good enough though if you can do that.

    PM’s have had an update.
    You can see groovy avatars and block people.

    I have temporarily turned off the Unread Topic Green Light feature as it is known to cause a few problems for some users.
    Hopefully I can sort this and get it switched back on.

    We have been suffering a bit of spam recently.
    I increased the aggressiveness of the spam filter for  24 hours and whilst it blocked the spam during that period, it also blocked some genuine topic replies.

    So for now I have turned it back down as I would rather have spam that can be deleted later, then genuine conversation delayed until approved.

    I will have a tinker with the registration process to see if that can help.
    Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    FB has temporarily locked my account, as such I am unable to read, post, reply or in anyway access FB via the Angel Barracks, Crom’s Anvil or TWW FB pages. 
    They are reviewing my account to determine if I am a real person…

    Sorry for any inconvenience they have caused.

    I have installed some software that prevents certain e-mail addresses from being used during registration, hopefully this will cut down on the amount of spammers.
    I will of course continue to monitor the situation.
    Thanks for your patience.

    2017 was a great year for growth.
    (December was a bit quieter but that is to be expected.)
    Thanks everyone.

    I have been tinkering with the spam settings in the forums as a few topics/replies have been caught by the filter and not published.
    In such instances there is a message that says it can not be created at this time.
    The thing is, it never will be unless I change the spam settings.
    So, instead the post will now be sent for moderation rather than simply not allowed.
    If you post a topic/reply and it seems to disappear into the ether but the topic shows that you updated it a few seconds ago, the post is in my queue.
    I will get onto it. 
    If you are in a mega rush for this to be approved, drop me an e-mail.

    I have added an SSL certificate to TWW, so you should now see a nice little green padlock when viewing the site (or the non Chrome browser equivalent to the padlock)
    In real terms nothing has changed at the back end, but with some websites and browsers urging people to stay away from ‘unsecure’ sites, it seemed prudent.

    I am doing some jiggery pokery with the site to try and improve the loading speed.
    I set up a cookie notice the other day, then deleted it and put a new one in place.
    Sorry for making you click it twice…

    I will TRY not to make another one.

    Two users on TWW reported seeing a message saying they are banned, please be aware no-one is banned unless they are told first, and banning is very very rare.

    I am not sure what caused the ban message to appear, I have not banned anyone of late.

    Oddly both people were called Paul.
